San Luis Walk In Clinic, Inc. (rural health clinic) Recognized by the American Heart Association “GOLD STATUS”

Yuma, AZ –  (October 25, 2018).- The Regional Center for Border Health, Inc./San Luis Walk-In Clinic, Inc. is proud to announce that the American Heart Association awarded it with the Gold Status with Target PB.

According to Ms. Julie Garcia, with the American Heart Association, the Target BO Recognition Program celebrates physician practices and health systems, who treat patients with hypertension, for achieving blood pressure control rates at or above 70 percent within the populations they serve.

These achievements will ultimately lead to a reduction in the number of Americans who suffer heart attacks and strokes.

The American Heart Association and the American Medical Association acknowledged early adopters of this initiative, recognized over 300 organizations in 2017, and is thrilled to recognize nearly 800 organizations in 2018, which includes San Luis Walk-In Clinic, Inc.

“We are so proud to be awarded by this nation-wide recognition, which means we are accomplishing our goal of promoting healthy communities and making our mission a reality each day”, said Ms. Amanda Aguirre, President and CEO of the Regional Center for Border Health, Inc./SLWIC.

Former State of Arizona Senator Ms. Aguirre also said that the RCBH/SLWIC has implemented several programs to serve the Yuma County community to reduce the risks that chronic diseases bring with them.
